A newly transferred SeeD cadet. Energetic, always smiling, and never shy, this lighthearted mood-maker has been known to casually drop a dark joke or two.

A SeeD cadet who transferred from Trabia Garden. Unabashed, and with a ready smile, Selphie is the life of any party.
Selphie is a playable character who could first be recruited as part of the A Planted SeeD Challenge Event. She was the First Time Completion Reward at the Missile Base. She was reissued globally on November 16, 2015 to prepare for Gunblade of the Sorceress; to unlock her on that day, players had to start an Event Quest and complete the Daily Dungeon on Hard difficulty. From November 18, 2015 until the Quest system was retired, she could be unlocked after accepting a Bonus Quest and completing the Record of Balamb Garden, Part 1 on the Classic difficulty track. She has since appeared in A Meeting Beyond Time, and had her starring role in A Special Place.
Selphie is a SeeD, whose combat role is Healing Magic.
Selphie is the White Mage representative of Final Fantasy VIII; even her unique Soul Breaks attest to as much. Her nunchakus are treated as staves. Her stat growth shows many hallmarks of the trade: low HP, poor physical stats, and high magical stats including Mind. Despite a decent Magic stat, Selphie is only a mid-level Black Mage, and she can cripple foes with her Celerity skillset.

Her default Soul Break is Wall which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment gives one ally Protect and Shell. The staff Morning Star (VIII) allows Selphie to use Trabia's Light which at the expense of one Soul Gauge segment restores a moderate amount of HP to all allies. The staff Crescent Wish (VIII) activates Selphie's Super Soul Break, Dreamstage, which for one Soul Gauge segment restores a large amount of HP to all allies and grants Magic Wall status, allowing the party to block one magic attack. Upon its mastery, Selphie's Mind is augmented by 10 points.
Selphie can equip the following weapon types: daggers, rods, staves, and whips. The staff Morning Star (VIII) allows Selphie to use Trabia's Light. The staff Crescent Wish (VIII) allows her to use Dreamstage.
She can equip accessories.
Selphie is represented in Earth-elemental cards. She is depicted in her official Final Fantasy VIII artwork and in her appearance in Final Fantasy Airborne Brigade, as well as an Amano artwork alongside Squall.
Selphie appears on a Triple Triad card, but it has different values than the card in Final Fantasy VIII.
A younger Selphie appears in Kingdom Hearts as a resident of Destiny Islands. She is friends with Tidus and Wakka from the Final Fantasy X cast, and tries to keep the two in line. She uses a jump rope instead of nunchaku, and is available as a sparring partner for Sora early in the game. Once Sora, Riku and Kairi are swept off the island, Selphie is left behind. She is still as clumsy as she was in Final Fantasy VIII; during a sparring match with her, she will accidentally hit herself with her jump rope if Sora manages to block her swing in time.
In Kingdom Hearts II, Selphie is back on the islands with Kairi, attending classes with her in town. She wears a school uniform and mentions Tidus and Wakka are "all wrapped up in their ball game" to Kairi.
She is voiced by Molly Keck in the English version and by Mayuko Aoki in the Japanese version.
Selphie makes an appearance in Kingdom Hearts χ [chi] as one of the obtainable character cards. She appears in the remake, Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross], on several medals.
